James R. Wiseman Book Award Nomination Form

Individuals seeking to nominate a book for the AIA’s James R. Wiseman Book Award should use this form. Nominated books should be academic in nature and cover an archaeological topic. Books must also bear a date of publication within the four calendar years prior to (not including) the year of the Annual Meeting at which the award is made.

Please address the following questions in your one paragraph nomination in the space below: Why is this the best book by an AIA member within the past four years? Does the work have the potential of changing or influencing the future direction of work in the field? Is the book well written? Will it be of interest to archaeologists outside the core professional membership of the AIA?
Please limit to one paragraph.
